You might want to take a look at this script (it lives in
/var/lib/dpkg/info/aim.prerm), and figure out what it's trying to do.

You *can* edit this file and modify it if you can see what needs to be
fixed.

Might also check the bugs filed on aime.  See 'bugview', part of the
'bug' package.  In this case it appears there are none.

Other general suggestions:

    $ dpkg --configure -a       # try to (re)configure all
                                # missing/unconfigured packags.

Cheers.
